Liquid Capacity in Standard Units

The students are currently learning all about measurement using U.S. Standards Units and the Metric System. Here is a fun activity they completed to help them learn about liquid capacity.

To listent to the music while the slideshow is playing, hover over the image of the show until you see the speaker icon with a line through it at the bottom. Then click on the icon and the music will play.

ounces > cups > pints > quarts > gallons

Please comment!
How did the Capacity Creature help you remember the number of cups in pint or pints in a quart or quarts in a gallon?
Are there other visuals or "tricks" you use to help you remember how to convert units of liquid capacity?
